You could then take a short drive to one of Ireland’s finest castle hotels, Dromoland Castle for breakfast. With an extraordinary history stretching back to the 5th Century, Dromoland Castle was originally the ancestral home of one of the few families of Gaelic Royalty; direct descendants of Brian Boru, the High King of Ireland. The breakfast here is truly amazing and believe me when I say it is fit for royalty. This is of course optional. You pay on-site on the day approximately €25.00- €30.00 per person but so worth it and a fantastic way to start your vacation. Alternatively, we could drive to your chosen hotel and check in if possible.

After breakfast we will the make our way to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and the Bunratty Woollen Mills store. One of Ireland’s most visited attractions, where you can experience the Irish way of life centuries ago. Built in 1425, Bunratty Castle was restored in 1954 to its former medieval glory with the addition of 15th and 16th century furnishings, arts and crafts. At the Bunratty Folk Park experience you can enjoy the sights, sounds, tastes and scents of this enchanting place as you stroll from house to house or around the charming village street complete with school, post office, doctors house, hardware shop, printers and of course McNamara’s pub!
We will then make our way to Limerick City, one of Ireland’s oldest medieval city’s dating back to 922 and was founded by the Normans. Known as the either the Lady City or Treaty City, it is Ireland’s Sporting capital and designated City of Culture 2014. In Limerick we can visit King John’s Castle and St Mary’s Cathedral both superb examples of 12th Century architecture. Then we can visit the famous Hunt Museum, which houses a massive private collection of artefacts entrusted to the state. We will then proceed to the Treaty Stone, Limericks best known landmark which marks the signing between the Jacobites and Williamites in 1691 – an important year in Ireland’s history. When the day is over and the jet lag will most certainly be setting in, we will make our way to the 5 Star Savoy Hotel to check-in. Many of our partner hotels offer everything for the discerning tourist within walking distance, including ATMs, historical Abbeys and churches, picturesque streets lined with thatch-roof housing, pubs and bars of distinction.

We depart The Savoy Hotel today after breakfast for the Wonderful Cliffs of Moher & the Burren. Rising from the sea to a height of 214 metres and running relentlessly for 5 miles, generations of visitors have not failed to be impressed by this wonder of the world. The Cliffs are just beautiful and there are great walks here. Regarded by many as their 8th wonder of the world. As you and your snap happy camera take in the magnificent view, you can feel the full force of the Atlantic Ocean from the floor up. Some souvenir and craft shopping can be done here also.
Then it’s on to the nearby Burren region, a limestone plateau with its treasure trove of geological and archaeological interests. The Burren is home to many of Ireland’s most famous prehistoric monuments.

This is a great show that lasts 50 minutes. Next up is the Dolmen Graves which go back to 3600 B.C. These Neolithic graves are very typical in County Clare.

Today we drive the famous Ring of Kerry, we will visit some lovely colourful little towns along the way, full of colourful characters too! One favourite is Waterville village, Charlie Chaplin fell in love with this place and he vacationed here every year. In fact in the end he loved it so much he moved here before he passed on to better things, we hope.
The scenery here is, well maybe I should just say that seeing is believing. We can have some very nice lunch at the Smugglers restaurant overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and proceed to the top of the mountain to see breathtaking views of the Ring of Kerry. We will then drive to my favourite town on the Ring of Kerry which is Kenmare, charming, friendly, traditional, peaceful…you can judge for yourself. When this beautiful day is over we return to Killarney for a grand evening meal.

Today we tour to the most awesome place on earth The Dingle Peninsula & Slea Head where we will see some of the most beautiful and unrivalled scenery in Ireland. Our tour will take us to the beautiful town of Dingle via the Conor Pass Mountains. The views here of Dingle town are spectacular and you can even see Tralee on the other side. You will have plenty of time to explore the lovely fishing village that Dingle is and take some lovely photos.

Onwards to Slea Head to continue the visual feast of scenic Ireland. We will stop at Dunbeg fort which takes us back to the 7 / 8th century with the unusual and intriguing Bee Hive Huts. Slea head has what surely is my favourite beach in the world, Dunquinn. The movie buffs among you will be able to see and learn all about the famous Ryan’s Daughter which was filmed onsite right here. No wonder as this place is simply magical. We then visit the Gallarus Oratory one of the first churches in Ireland, before some time in Dingle and onwards to Killarney via Inch beach. This is one beautiful day that you will never forget.

Today is a favourite of ours, The Gap of Dunloe, it gets us up out of bed earlier than usual! We begin by taking a short drive to Kate Kearney’s Cottage where we jump twice – once on an Irish Jaunting Car ( Horse & Carriage), and secondly, we jump back in time and things get pretty authentic here folks.
We tour through the beautiful mountains, mystical lakes & valleys which abound County Kerry, with majestic scenery everywhere we look. You will be able to get out of the carriage and walk through this pure and unspoiled beautiful terrain. Your camera will be snapping crazy so make sure it’s fully charged!When we get to the top of the mountain you can have some light lunch at Lord Mount Brandon’s Cottage.
After this magnificent lunch you will come down the other side of the mountain in an open Fisherman’s boat down through the 3 Lakes of Killarney to Ross Castle. Keep your eyes peeled, on the way down you might see some eagles nests in the mountains and see some salmon swimming beside you in the lake. This tour will live with you for a long time to come, it is truly spectacular. We will then make our way back to Limerick city and check into the 5 Star Savoy Hotel in the heart of the city which is surrounded by fantastic bars, restaurants, nightlife and traditional entertainment.

Today we head for the Blarney Stone & the Blarney Woollen Mills. Go on, do it! Kiss the famous Blarney Stone that millions of people line up to do every year. For over 200 years, world statesmen, literary giants, and legends of the silver screen have joined the millions of pilgrims climbing the steps to kiss the Blarney Stone and gain the gift of eloquence. Its powers are unquestioned but its story still creates debate.
Once upon a time, visitors had to be held by the ankles and lowered head first over the battlements. Today, we are rather more cautious of the safety of our visitors. The Stone itself is still set in the wall below the battlements. To kiss it, one has to lean backwards (holding on to an iron railing) from the parapet walk. The prize is a real one as once kissed the stone bestows the gift of eloquence. I think every Irishman and woman have kissed it at some stage. Blarney Castle is also surrounded by the most beautiful grounds and gardens and you will have plenty of time to explore them. You will then have time to shop till you drop and purchase all your authentic shopping in the world famous Blarney Woollen Mills right next door. They stock everything from authentic Irish Linens and lace, to Waterford Crystal at Duty Free prices and they will even ship them directly to your house for you if you wish!
After Blarney we will head to a favourite gem of mine, the Jameson Whiskey Distillery in Middleton where they make the best whiskey in the world. This is a great tour indeed. If we have time we can visit the heritage town of Cobh, this was the last port of call for the Titanic before that dreaded voyage. We can do the Titanic museum tour there. When the day is over we return to Limerick for an evening meal and overnight accommodation.
